Will be interesting to see what countries have different players - Holland and England we know will be two.
And will America finally get some fresh blood in the team?

Why should the Holland team change?

players are ranked higher than barney now so if the rules are followed like last year someone else will be in

Unless he gets relegated in Rotterdam and announces that is his last event then i will be shocked if the Dutch pairing isn't MVG and Barney again - irrespective of who is above Barney in the OOM.

Players are picked as follows.

Quote:Qualifying Players:
32 pairs representing different nations selected at the discretion of the PDC.

So Barney will be most likely in, as he is one the one side part of the defending team and also most fans will care more for Barney than for Wattimena.

I think the world cup needs a bit of tweaking. The doubles should be the first match at every stage.

I wonder if Cadby can break into the Aussie pairing ahead of Simon Whitlock and Kyle Anderson. Doubt it this year unless he wins a major...

I guess Wade will miss out behind Cross and Smith.

The cut off date is May 12th, and the only tv events between now and then are PL nights - there are a couple of Euro Tour events he could possibly qualify for and also another 6 Pro Tour events he can play, but even if he won all of them I don't think he could overtake Kyle in the rankings.

I know the choice is at the PDC's discretion, but I don't think they would leave Kyle out this year if he was second Aussie on the list.

Eight top seeds at this stage using the "Combined Ranking Lowest Total" method would be:

Scotland (Wright and G.Anderson, total ranking 7)
England (Cross and Smith, total ranking 8)
Wales (Price and Clayton, total ranking 22)
Netherlands (Van Gerwen and Van Barneveld??, total ranking 33)
Australia (Whitlock and K.Anderson, total ranking 33)
Northern Ireland (Gurney and Dolan, total ranking 46)
Belgium (K.Huybrechts and Van Den Bergh, total ranking 55)
Austria (Suljovic and Lerchbacher, total ranking 70)

Same 8 seeds as last year, albeit 3-6 shuffling about.

Just missing out on a seeding would be:

Germany (Hopp and Schindler, total ranking 75)
Spain (Reyes and Alcinas, total ranking 81)


As stated previously no majors up to play for but five Euro Tours and six players championships. The seedings could go up and down but apart from the doubt surrounding the Dutch pairing I see no change in the top 8 pairings. Wonder if we're going to see any new nations invited, there wasn't last year but I feel like seen as though we now have a Portuguese tour card holder we may see Portugal invited. Maybe at the expense of Italy?

I'm interested in to what Canada will have on offer Tongue
Murschell and Smith? Dawson is the only one with a card so it could be anyone.

I think John Part will get an invite

No question about Singapore on who will pair up. Unless they for some reason really dig into our talent pool and pull out a friend of mine like Melvin Zheng or recent Target signing Leslie Lee in the fold...

But really, this World Cup should be exciting. If Barney is chosen, I'd be rooting for The Netherlands, but...selfishly, home country pride comes first.
